romney in a minute, but first listen to what john boehner said after the election. >> mr. president, this is your moment. we are ready to be led. not as democrats or republicans, but as americans. let's rise above the this function and do the right thing for our country. >> later john maynard told diane sawyer he is the most reasonable, responsible person -- john boehner told diane sawyer he is the most reasonable, responsible person in washington and the president knows that. the fiscal cliff looms at the end of the year. will we reach a compromise before then, charles? >> i do not think it will be a comprehensive compromise. i think they will be able to patch something together. i think they will be able to agree on it true tax reform sometime next year. i think they will get passet the cliff if -- the cliff. if he insists on raising rates, he will be stymied. >> what is the message? >> it is a mixed message. i think we all agree the corner stone of the president from message is we raise taxes on those earning over $250,000. mitt romney pledged toepea obamacare. these are the esse
to retire. i think mr. john boehner wants to work out a deal. i really do. he has to get through. kantor and some of the others on the extreme right. -- eric cantor and some of those on the right. i do not like the extremism. it is not helpful to the country at all. host: thank you for the call. we read this at the top of the program. on our twitter page, there is this -- nancy cook puts it this way. "game of chicken." her answer, probably not. george is on the phone from the line for republicans. caller: i just think when the voters spoke on the past election that we as citizens are being shortchanged. we vote our -- our constituents voted for representatives, but we are not being represented. in the last 30 days of the campaign, i decided to be an independent. i was not convinced everybody was being fairly treated with the tax cuts. therefore, i believe speaker john boehner, rip cantor, reid, and the president to sit down and realize we elected them to look out for our best interests. what we do not get that, you get the backlash you got on the last election. host: a couple of other op
house speaker john boehner both laid out ideas to avert the so-called fiscal cliff. tax increases and spending cuts are due to hit in january, but today it seemed the two leaders and the bipartisan deal are still worlds apart. steve handelsman is on capitol hill with more on that. steve? >> you got it right. this is a restart of a high-stakes negotiation between those two men. the president and the speaker. the problem is beginning today where they left off, which is far apart. in a speech at the white house, president obama claimed the election proved most americans agree with his plan. that he calls balanced. cutting spending and hiking taxes to avoid the fiscal cliff. he said he's flexible -- >> but i refuse to accept any approach that isn't balanced. i am not going to ask students and seniors and middle class families to pay down the entire deficit while people like me making over $250,000 aren't asked to pay a dime more in taxes. >> reporter: he's calling in members of congress for fiscal cliff meetings next week. but the main republican negotiator, again, will be speaker joh
and house speaker john boehner. and analysis from the national journal. last night and democrats held on to their senate majority. harry reid talked about the election results. we will hear from republican john bellair. -- john boehner. >> i am glad to be back. it was a late night, early morning. to it is clearly we're going increase our majority. but the results show a number of things. a number of things for certain. one is that we're the party of diversity. look at the results from all over the country. i'm looking forward to working with so many great accomplished centers. i have talked to virtually everyone of them. when i came to the senate, barbara mikulski was it as far as women. now one-third of our caucus is women. the remarkable work done by all these great centers to be. but the election is over and we have enormous challenges ahead of us. they're right here. and we have to sit down and go to work on it now, not wait. this was the message the american people sent from all over and that is they're tired of these partisan gridlocks. they're tired of things like i have one go
and you can't -- you can't tax them anymore. don't put too much faith into what john boehner had to say yesterday. it was an opening but not a done deal yet. >> yeah. >> bill: kala is in valdosta, georgia. hi kayla. >> bill: great victory huh? >> caller: i actually fell in above with barack obama in 2004 at the dnc. i was a sophomore in high school. [ laughter ] >> bill: good for you. >> caller: i was actually living in ohio at the time. i said that man's going to be the first black president of the united states. i got my butt laughed off. >> bill: you never fell out of love with him. >> no. i ran georgia southern students for barack obama in 2008. >> bill: wow! yeah. >> caller: i'm -- i'm 24 now and i'm black and i'm a female and he's for education. he's for helping people helping themselves and i think that's what the republican party and those that vote that way don't understand. he doesn't want to give out handouts. he wants to give a hand up. there's a big difference in that until the republican pa
reason for that wall street trouble, the so called fiscal cliff approaching this morning. john boehner says he and republicans are willing to work with president obama and democrats to reach a deal to avoid sweeping cuts and tack hikes. boehner warns that a deal won't come easily. >> we won't solve the problem of our fiscal imbalance overnight and certainly won't do it in a lame-duck session of congress and it won't be solved by taking a plunge off the fiscal cliff. what we can do is avert the cliff in a manner that serves as a down payment on and a catalyst for major solutions enacted in 2013 to begin to solve the problem. >> speaker boehner says the deal could include new tax revenue to help reduce the national debt. >>> new this morning, we've learned president obama will be making a ground breaking trip in two weeks. an official from the southeast asian country of myanmar says the president will visit on either november 18th or 19th. it will be the first ever visit to that country by a u.s. president. the obama administration is trying to encourage democracy in that country. the pr
are expecting that john boehner will remain the speaker and erick kcantor will be the number two. there is not any major legislation on the floor of the house that we are expecting. >> the president is speaking again on wednesday on this and other issues. >> and using his post as the election pulpit to start the process. >> absolutely. >> a thank you for being here. an interesting couple weeks ahead for us to watch. [captioning performed by national captioning institute] [captions copyright national cable satellite corp. 2012] >> watched grover norquist again at 6:00 p.m. eastern here on c- span. and about 30 minutes, president obama will participate in the presidential ceremony at the tomb of the unknowns. we will bring you live coverage here on c-span. while we wait, here's a look at the presidential election and congress from this morning's "washington journal." don >> he is still resolute in the face of defeat. >> not to see you. sometimes you win. sometimes you lose. >> this is tough. he is a close contender. he has given credit for getting george bush elected in 2000. bbthe
. john boehner making comments that they also want to work together. but, again, this is the choice that we have been talking about over the last several months. spending cuts, tax increases. >> we should mention that we're also more renewed fears in europe, the greek debt crisis rearing its ugly head. >> absolutely. it's clear that greece cannot pay its bills. now we're thinking, okay, this is another pressure for the u.s. economy. so we're all waiting on some kind of compromise out of washington as well as some stability in europe. but for sure, we'll probably see some volatility going forward. doesn't really mean much, though, long-term. >> i was going to say, let's get some perspective. there was a huge drop after the president's election four years ago. but over the last four years, wall street has been up. >> that's right. over the long-term, you have to look at fundamentals. and the corporate sector right now is very strong. a lot of cash on the balance sheets, longer term earnings should be okay. but over the near term, expect some choppiness. >> maria, thank you. and i know
'm encouraged that speaker boehner is making some conciliatory comments. >> stephanie: here is john boehner yesterday. >> there is a mandate in yesterday's results, it's a mandate for us to find a way to work together on the solutions to any challenges that we all face as a nation. >> stephanie: now? now you are going to try to work -- this just make you shake your head having been in the trenches there for the last few years. >> it does. one thing that will change the dynamic is for all of those in the gop leadership who's soul reason for being seem to be denying the president to second term, stop him from accomplishing anything if they could. obviously that motivation is gone. so hopefully that will make them a little more willing to come to the table. i was a little bit struck by something when the speaker talked about this being the president's moment -- the president's time. it seemed to me that this is a shared responsibility. he should be saying, rather it's our time to come together and make this happen rather than we're going to wait for you, mr. president.
%? this is a very clear issue and the first challenge for john boehner. 90% vs. 2%. he is -- they have sided with 2%. can he get them to give 90% of americans a tax break? if not, the republican party is in more trouble. >> ami sheree this order -- editorial saying that the republicans have no foothold in -- and little room to negotiate and the president will drive a bargain. >> it would have to say this. republicans are not dealing from strength. they were in 2010 when they elected 63 tea party freshman and i could block or pass anything they wanted. john boehner was to admit that they do not win and if they do not when you are not dealing with a position of strength. president obama is. >> 1042 to five days until the next presidential election. host: hillary clinton would be the best prepared candidate. one who has lived in the u.s. senate, a woman who knows virtually every head of state in the world and is a strong opinion of the inclusion of -- social inclusion. i come close but will not talk about that until hillary -- people decide what to do. >> what is your decision making process moving fo
